man. for she was successful In. s double ca- 

paclr/'. ' ■" OT*e : ' ^*2ay . proved saccessfol Above : her 
modest .expectations, - and. she was : called upon 
again and again for a. curtain speech, which 
she .modestly declined. Louis jSIann responded 
for her, stating that the play -was the re- 
sutt of many hours of hard work, that It was 
her inspiration and that she had been success- 
fol. in.' omicelvinar'-a play for herself that other 
authors had failed In providing. 

JnHe Bon Bon is a comedy drama Of New 
York life. Julie Is a French milliner who -meets 
JiAn Var^Bfhnt. adon -of an exCInsive famllv;

It was an atww&elmlns " success for Miss 
Lippman. The «? enacts gives her every

of her tilents;' The play Is rather serions for 
a comedy drama. It teems with scenes of in-

emotional work on the part of the actress.

role of Julie's father, an old man. His part

the time that' - Milan Bennett was : shot dead, 
died Monday evening following the first trag- 
edy. The alleged guilty party, a prominent 
hotel man. Is held for the double murder. ' 

The affair has caused much feeUng among 
citizens of the South Carolina city, and there 
was much talk of lynching the hotel man. 
However, a vigilant sheriff and , bis deputies 
made that contingency an impossibility, and the 
&ccused'man:wHl be given- a : >:trlal according :-to 
law. The various charitable organisations ral-

money to the treasury to: defray: their expenses

Beryl Hope Making Good— Altitude 
Affects Performers— Other Notes 
From Southern Republic. ■.; 

The Beryl Hope Stock Co., : now playin g at 
the Benaclmiento Theatre in the; dty «f vKex- 
lco, is making good. The company, 'entirely 
American, opened Dec. 8 with Beryl Hope and 
Edwin Mordant to the leading roles. Other 
members of -the :' company -are : Grace AtweU, 
Katherlne Field, Louise Macintosh, Lottie ; Al- 
ter, George Bloomquest, Bobeft Sogers, Donald . 
Bowles, John Harrington, Ernest Joy, Robert ; 
Lowe, and ; -about * ; doaen- others - who'- play . 
minor parts. In additions there is a pony 
ballet which has made quite a hit. 

The Beryl Hope: JCol.: the . first American 
company of any conBeq.nence that has played 
Mexico City, has been making money despite 
many adversities, not the ; hjsst: . «f ! -wMCh ^Ss 
the return of ' Sra. 'LnisarTetraaadDi, :tae. "idol- 
lied lyric soprano. Tails famous Italian singer, 
hearing that Marie : Berrlentos, greatest of 
Spanish singers, was threatening an Invasion 
of her beloved Mexico, threw up -attractive 'en- 
gagements in the United States and rushed to 
the Mexican capital to forestall her, even hav- 
ing prepared to present the same plays at cut 
rate prices. A beautiful theatrical war was 
promised for Mexico, hut Barrientos did not 
arrive and Tetrazstoi, playing at the Arben 
Theatre under the supervision of .the -Mexican 
government, has the whole thing to herself so 
far as playing to the native =- tongue' la con- 
cerned. .-: 

As the American colony In Mexico City, so 
far as theatregoers may be counted. : consists 
of scarcely more than 1,000 people, the Amer- 
ican company, managed hy- Miss Beryl: Hope, - 
has therefore had to watch ends« closely. a See- 
ing that the Mexican press agents are lack. to 
their methods. Miss Hope, with the energy of 
an American, has been watching that end of 
the business closely. Before engaging her com- 
pany ahe spent nearly half a> year to the 
capital, during which time she sold for the 
season nearly every box :in:.the'::RpnaHmlento 
Theatre, which Is the second amuse In im- 
portance to Mexico. These boxes were aold ' to 
the highest clsss Mexican society, so that a 
featore of the * attendance on many occasions 
has been the presence of the family of the 
president of the republic and the families of 
many high officials. 

Beryl Hope's : engagement wm close about 
Feb. 1, after, which ahe and her company will 
tour the Mexican states. In order to, get the 
Americans to make Guadalajara, the second 
city In the republic, the Americans there have 
assured Beryl Hope that the best theatre there 
Is at her .disposal without A cent's expense: : 
After a week or ten days there, the Company 
win start, for ffle coast to embark for Merida, 
where a short stand wm be played. 

The advent of the American company here 
follows closely on the heels of tiw first Inva- 
sion by an American circus of any note. The 
Norria * Bbwe Greater Combined Shows/played 
eighteen performances here to good; Crowds, 
closing about the middle or October with as- 
surance of a return next season. Thus Amerr 
leans have established themselves here for 
sure, the Mexicans taking enthosiaatrcally to 
our institutions of an amusement nature. 

A feature of the ..city, with which managers 
have to contend. Is the altitnde. Being nearly 
a mfle and a quarter above sea level, acrobats 
and dancers have difficulties of a. physical na- 
ture with which to: contend, especially as sur- 
ronnding show towns,, are at a much tower: 
altitnde and the "Jump to the capital is often, 
made without opportunity for artists to become 
acclimated before appearing in their first per- 
formsnees, by which performahces the public 
is prone to Judge the merits of the show. 


The new Bijou Theatre at Evansville, Ind.. 
opened Sunday, Dec. : 8«, under -the: manager: 
ment of Geo. Bellinger, with a strong vaude- 
ville bill. The new house: seats 1.000 people.' 
and has a balcony: and boxes. The stage has 
an opening of 18 by 80 feet and la provided 
with a handsome drop! curtain to addition to 
the asbestos: curtain. The building Is bean-, 
tlfally decorated, and the opera chairs are of 
the latest, design. The staff consists of J. H. 
Bopke, treasurer; Bngene BsubUt, advertising 
manager and doorkeeper; Joe Burke, stage man- 
ager, and:: B; B. ' Gleason;' Jr., electrician. 


The wm of the late Louise Bldrldge wss ad- 
mitted to probate to New: Tork City last week. 
To. Press Eldridge it bequeaths some- Jewelry, 
the ' old . bookcase and the old-fashioned arm- 
chair, both of which were -used by the actress 
for many years. Mr. Eldridge also gets the 
Commodore ^Decatur sword,': and when-: the es- 
tate is divided he gets half, the residue going 
to his sister, Ltnie E. Byan, who was also 
bequeathed considerable Jewelry and wardrobe. 

Mrs. Byan was named as executrix.

—Theatre Crowded. 


■The Aldwych,' the newest; and one of : the

the first time Saturday evening, Dec. 23, with 
Seymour Hicks and Ellaline Terriss playing the 
principal roles in Bluebells of Fairyland^ Sey- 
mour Hicks is the proprietor of the; hew thea- 
tre and Charles Frohman ; is its manager. ' 

The new theatre Is massive and elaborate. 
The grand staircase and; the crash-room are in 
oak. Generally, the scheme of ornamentation 
is of white and gold,; with the .simple contrast 
of .very -rich rose dn Barry: draperies and : car. 
pets. There is a semi-circular, vestibule which 
leads direct into the grand crush-room. The 
latter is a very fine apartment, and the walls 
are -partly; rounded, with ; a : circular: balcony 
overhead, which in its turn is connected with 
the grand foyer above, so that a height of 
nearly ISO feet is obtained from the door of 
the crush-room. At the back of the dress-circle 
is . a .handsome and -vconvenlent lounge, from 
which one can view the -performances. This is 
also to direct communication with the foyer 
and the crush-room. ."-..-..-"■" 

The house seats 1,200 and there Is standing 
room for; 300 more. The stage is ample tor 
aB purposes, ' being; 40: feet deep, 70' feet wide; 
a height of 55.: feet to the gridiron .and a depth 
of the stage cellar of about 25 feet, enabling: 
stage-cloths to be taken down below as well 
as up aloft. .■-.■■-'

After the preliminary baUet, a condensed 
version of My Lady Nicotine, the flrat torn

"most sincere , flattery* ' of the Inimitable Geo. 
Poller Golden. Lea Perez are four people who 
all work at once on a perpendicular ladder and

the Llewelyns, Australia's operatic vocalists, 
who have been, in the states and all who have 
heard them win remember their remarkable 
voices. The Tetter Brothers do a novel pot- 
pourri act in the costumes of heralds. The 
picture machine is giving Jonnie Dewar*a whis- 
key about the best "boose' that can be Imag- 
ined. A fifteen minute film depicts the pro- 
cess of manufacturing Scotch Joy from* reaping 
the barley to drinking the health of the King. 
It is an Interesting and Instructive film and 
one of a series prodnced by the TJrbanora people 
which are very popular In this country jnst 
now. Of course, the "big" show of the even- 
ing was the new ballet, Parisians, which (in 
9plte of the fog which penetrated every cor- 
ner of the theatre) shone oat with a wonder- 
ful glow of color. 

The Alhambra baa rarely. If ever, dressed a 
ballet more beautifully, and the music was ex- 
pressive and spaikllngv ■ For . the earlier of the 
six scenes Mr.; James,: Glove*: has done hla best 
work, weaving ; some' very f tuneful themes into 
the bustling events of: the old Market place of 
Paris and the dressmaker's shop of a later 

The ballet begins with a scene In Paris at 
the time of the Revolution. Then-it passes to

HarleMn Koenig, a romantic- drama 
by Randolphe Xothar, has been, played through- 
out Germany, the home of its origin, and many 
other countries : with conspicuous success. The 
story la; Ingenious and possesses strong dram- 
atic qualities- The action Is laid In Italy 
during the sixteenth century, and* the play 
starts -with a- .singularly -powerful' : situation. 

- Prince Bohemond, son ofi-the ; -reigning, king, 
who lies at the point of. death. . has Jnst re- 

- turned home - from ; a: distant --country, ■ accom- 
panied by a troupe of pantomlmlsts, including 
Harlequin and Columbine. Bohemond, although 
engaged: to the Princess "GIsahas, becomes pas- 
sionately attached! to 'Columbine. But Colum- 
bine loves Harlequin, and the latter In order 
to save bis sweetheart from bis Master's ad- 
vances, plunges a dagger into the Prince's 
heart. Almost simultaneously: the King dies, 
and to the Harlequin there seems no other way 
out of the emergency bat to assume the man- 
tel of the murdered Prince to whom be bears 

a- Strong : resemblance. -AH this- takes, place in 
the first act. and provides, as may be ulmag- 
Ined, a thrilling point of departure for what 
la to follow. ' 

The play has been adapted for the English 
stage by Louis N. Parker, and Lewis WeBer 
has arranged for it to follow Alfred Sotro's The 
Perfect Lover, at the Imperial. 


A couple of successful sketches just 
produced are Orange Nell and Nana. 

The former Is another version of the life of 
Nell Gwynne. Charles IL Is lunching in the 
garden of an Inn at Chelsea waiting for Nell. 
The Inn-keeper does not know the illustrious 
personage for the merry monarch chooses to 
do his love-making incognito, and Is for the 
nonce Lord Medhurst Nell Is anxious to find 
out bow much the King loves her, and she ar- 
rives at the Inn disguised as Orange Nell 
from the Drury Lane Theatre. Charles's pa- 
tience Is almost exhausted by the non-appear- 
ance of Nell and be is inclined to be rude to 

that there's life In the Lady of the Camellias 
yet. Isn't It wonderful how she comes up 
smiling and coughing? This time, however, she 
has borrowed ber front name from Zola. 


According to the Rial to, a well- 
known authority: on finance, the days of many 
provincial theatres, publicly,- and privately 
owned, are numbered, unless an amalgamation 
of Interests takes place on the lines of the 
Moss Empire, Ltd, we are quite aware that 
the heavy percentages which provincial man- 
agers have to pay on popular -London .successes 
precludes their making anything but a mini- 
mum profit, but for oar part, we are afraid 
the Rialto Is hardly aware of the conflicting 
Interests at work, which would make an amal- 
gamation on the Moss plan very difficult ot 
realization. Robert Arthur, who is running 
eight pantomimes in the London suburbs and In 
the provinces, has been initiating an Inqusltlve 
interviewer into the cost of producing an or- 
dinary pantomime, and the figures are some- 
what alarming. Before a single artist has been 
engaged Mr. Arthur puts down the preliminary 
expenses at anything between £5,000 and 
£8,000. Then come -the artists, the special 
attractions, the stage staff, the orchestra and 
the front of the house staff. The life of a 


"Sugar Queen." Her jewels and dresses' have 
been the talk of Paris for three seasons. 

We regret to announce that early Friday 
morning at Bristol, Edith Morris, the wife, of 
the wen-known animal trainer, poisoned . her- , 
self by drinking carbolic add. At the In- 
quest a verdict of "Suicide while of unsound 
mind" was rendered; Deceased was, formerly 
also an animal trainer end her. husband.::* 
assign no reason for her act. 


A telegram from Berlin "states that : 
It is possible that Mr. Beerhohm Tree and his 
company will pay a visit to Germany in April. 
A proposal to this effect has been made by the. 
Director of the Royal theatreB of Berlin., to 
■Mr. ■ Tree and it Is suggested that .the plays : 
produced at the' New Opera House should be 
Julian Caesar, The Tempest Richard XILr and .: 
A Winter's Tale, and that the tour should. in- 
clude Hamburg, Leipzig, Munich and Cologne. 
No definite arrangement has been made.

the Intruder. But Nell's retorts always get 
home, and she chaffs him about Nell Gwynne, 
tmtn he confesses his complete lore for the 
vivacious little damsel. Orange Nell then takes 
her departure, but returns in all the glory of 
satin, lace and feathers, and Is jnst in time 
to prevent Lord Medhurst from being arrested 
for not paying his bill, his purse having been 
stolen by Nell when disguised. After staging 
very prettily to King Charles, be promises to 
comply with any wish she expresses. In re- 
sponse to her first and only request of the 
moment, he declares he win build a home for 
old soldiers on the very spot where they are 
standing at Chelsea. And so with this oft- 
repeated historical error Orange Nell ends. 

The second sketch of the week Is Nana. 
Nana Is a popular actress, whom rumor credits 
with being no better than she should be. She 
loves and la beloved by Armand. a young aris- 
tocrat, whose Intentions are honorable, and the 
young couple are to be married. One evening 
to Nana'a dressing-room comes Armand's fa- 
ther to ten the actreaa that the parenta of his 
daughter's fiance threaten to break off the 
match unless Armand l eno an ce s the actress. 
To preserve the happiness of her lover's father 

and sister. Nana turns Armand's love to hatred 
by declaring that She has sold herself to a 
certain dissolute Count. Later we see Nana 
heartbroken and dying in her own apartments, 
whence comes Armand with the news that bis 
father has relented. But It is too late, and 
Nana dies in her lover's arms. All the same — 
as far as the story Is concerned— It would seem 

pantomime in London is six weeks; in the 
provinces it is from ten to twelve weeks, and 

from £12,000 to £18,000 bas to be taken at 
the doors before a penny of profit is realized. 
(How anyone can make a pantomime pay on 
these terms it la hard to say. 


It would seem that Mr. Forbes Rob 
ertson's luck Is "dead out," for no sooner bad 
it become evident that Mrs. Grundy is capable 
of attracting playgoers to that palace in Slum, 
dotn, the Scala Theatre, that Mr. Robertson 
must succumb to Influenza, and now he has 
been ordered to the Continent by his physi- 

News has just arrived of a splendid success 
achieved by F. W. Wyndham'a pantomime, Al- 
laddln at the Boyal Theatre, Glasgow. The 
two prominent novelties which are .basts of the 
success of the production are Harry Lauder, 
the great Scotch comedian, who Is seen for 
the first time In pantomime, and a real ma- 
gician, Imro Fox, in the part of Abanaxer. 
Both of whom scored splendidly at the open- 
ing performance.

enliar : day. A . .The afternoon . was .a decidedly 
pleasant, -consequently: people-: did - not; flock , to 
the theatres and none of them were crowded. 
At night they, were deluged with people who 
wanted to pay any price: for seats, and numbers 
.were turned : away. This overflow helped to 
make the rest of the week a red " letter one. 
Xone of the managers look -for much at the 
New Tear's matinees, as " we have"' a big 
Mardl Gras procession, which win keep people 
on -the streets; but the I- night performance wfll

For real show business take a" peep at what 
Channcey Olcott did at bis matinee Wednes- 
day, Dec- 2T.' 1 The entire bouse waa sold ont 
at one o'clock, and as everybody was seated 
at ' 1^0 the curtain was rung np just forty 
minutes ahead -of the usual time. This gave 
the star quite a rest between the matinee and

' Hyde ft Behman furnished an entertainment 
for. the New Tork City Home of the Aged and 
Infirm last week in Uie Almshouse Chapel on 
Clarkson street. The program was carefully 
adopted to the occasion. The business manager, 
Nick Norton, an old-timer in variety : acting 
and specialist in juggling from I860 to 1876. 
took absorbing Interest In the layout of the 
performance. He remembered wen when the 
Indian dancers " In the old Barnum mnsenm, 
in which he was a feature, broke np the show 
and broke off: his first engagement, but in his 
diversified experience he had rarely played 
nnder snch peculiar conditions as these nor man- 
aged a performance In which he took more in- 
terest. - Such; a tireat as this is very rare : in 
this: Institution : for :'aged ; and -respectable poor 
people, and Hyde ft Behman did a good tarn 
in giving it. especially since ' It -entailed upon 
the company no Uttle trouble ' and expense in 
producing talent and defraying transportation 
charges. . A ; 

- M. S. IBentham's big -vaudevine production. 
The Prince of Pllsen City Girls, which has 
made good, is booked on the. Percy G. Williams' 
Circuit, and wfll appear at the Orpheum week

Christmas Day came and was very quiet and 
pleasant, the weather being unusually fine. As 
a general rule, many seemed to show a marked 
preference . to . remain ;. at home than to go. to 
theatres.: while others seemed to find the .thea- 
tre their principal diversion. Consequently; the 
popular priced booses attracted the largest pa- 
tronage. Attendance . at the matinee was. good' 
and the evening . performance drew decidedly 
better. .;"'•'"' 

All the Christmas attractions were well- 
known successes, -with the exception ' of "Julie 
Bonbon,- the'.- new, comedy drama fa '-which' Louis 
Mann and Clara Unman are playln; and this 
show received the local verdict of approval. 

The Empty Stocking Club, a local charity In- 
stitution; held forth as ~ usual at Ford's Opera 
Honse, and distributed good things to the poor 
children. . -Scott Cooper, a siember of The Gal- 
loper Co., bad the honor of assuming the role 
of Santa 'Clans; and"the, ladles of the com- 
pany assisted the members of the club In their 
good work.^ 

The Galloper, which was given its premiere 
at; Ford's r Iast week,- was nnnsnaUy well pa- 
tronised, all things considered. The success 
is easily accounted for. as Richard Harding 
Davis, the author. Is weU known locally.- Ray- 
mond Hitchcock and May Buckley have firmly 
established themselves In the good graces of 
theatregoers, and most of the surrounding com- 
pany have long been Identified here with stock 
companies.: ■•-.-..

pacity Christmas evening, and many hnndreds 
were turned away. A Bogera Brothers - In A Ire-

of Summers and Winters, and the team la 
known as the Three Dancing Rings. They do

been playing to the best of success, and that 
they had some good bookings ahead. They

tlona. Christmas Day and the two 
days ensuing were beautifully bright 
and warm, consequently the attendance 
at the theatres waa almost generally capacity. 
Special attractions were provided, for the most 
part, and at all the houses an extra effort was 
made to have the holiday bills above the stand- 

Later In the week, however, the skies be- 
came overcast and rain and snow acted as a 
detriment to traffic. Still there was no ma- 
terial decrease in box-office receipts. Theatre- 
goers had purchased their tickets in advance, 
and -they used them. 


On Dec 30 the long and successful 
run of George M. Cohan's litest comedy. Forty- 
five Minutes from Broadway, at the Colonial 
was brought to a close In order to transfer the 
production to the New Amsterdam Theatre 
New York. This has been deferred some time 
on account of the great popularity of the Cohan 
play In Chicago, but at last the New York de- 
mand for the piece has become so Imperative 
that It waa absolutely necessary for Klaw ft 
Brlanger to take It away from the protesting 
Chicago theatregoers. ^ 

The run at the Colonial baa been phenomenal - 
even during the week before Christmas the 
magnificent playhouse waa packed to capacity 
at every performance. 

From a professional viewpoint, it Is about 
aa nearly perfect aa a comedy can be. Its set- 
tings. Its costumes, and Its business are all 
Just right. There is not a surfeit of mnslc 
and the few numbers rendered have taken place 
in the front rank of light mnslc hits ofthe 
season. How much of the success of the play 
1* *"..$• *** Templeton and Victor Moore is 
hnpoaalble to say. Mr. Cohan baa provided 
them with parts to which they are superbly 
adapted— they do the rest. 

ilr. Moore's impersonation or the New York 
Street gamin, who has grown to an amateur 
pnglllst and a racetrack follower, la beyond 
criticism. His Intonation, his vernacular and 
his hnsiaeas has seen given the most studied 
attention, and there are no flaws to pick. 

The same may be said of Miss Templeton's 
Mary, the house maid. Ever a favorite. Fay 
Templeton has probably never occupied a role 
that could possibly have endeared her further 
to theatregoers. Her mannerisms even are the 
cues for appaluae. and her art aa a comedi- 
enne has never been more thoroughly sustained 
than in the present vehicle. That the play and 
the stars will receive an innovation on Broad- 
way. Is without question.

week preceding Christmas were not sufficiently 
interesting to attract the holiday shoppers. 
However, taking all things into consideration 
The Orphenm, Burwood and Krug did very welL 
The Boyd Theatre has been dark for the past 
fortnight with the exception of two or three 
nights, but Manager Burgess promises some 
exceUent -shows after the . first of the year. 

The Christian, presented by the Woodward 
Stock Co., recently, was the best production 
put on by this excellent company since the 
opening of the Burwood Theatre. Both Mr. 
Morrison and Miss 'Long were seen to a better 
advantage than in any previous play, and the 
remaining players were all especially adopted 
to their parts. Much credit is due Sedley 
Brown, the new director. 

Ralph Hay ward, the popular head door- 
keeper at Boyd's Theatre, has been associated 
with Manager Burgess for the past sixteen 
years. He also holds a responsible position 
with the Burlington Railroad, and has many 
friends among the profession.

proceeding Christmas. 

The Omaha Eagle Club presented Chimes of 
Normandy 27-28, the cast and chorus being 
composed of local talent, under the direction 
of W. H. Kircross. They presented a credita- 
ble performance and were greeted by large

Though the season so far has not 
been productive of any really great 
hits, the ratio of the failures is so 
low 'as., to augur well for the ability 
of the producers to select what the 
public most desires.

More - than'„"nsual the holidays this 
year were occasion for festivities 
among- theatrical people. Probably not 
so much because* of a past: half sea- 
son's .business ajj. of ^.confidence born 
of hope and augmented by favorable 
prospects? There is an affinity, be- 
tween "the stage and Christmas time. 
Christmas is' primarily a-- season of 
hopefulness, and hopefulness: Is a car-

The John Doe proceedings into the 
methods of the syndicate were some- 
what delayed last week because' Jus- 
tice Leventritt, who was sitting In that 
branch of the Supreme Court to which 
the writ was returnable, declined to 
decide an issue in which his son was 
ef counsel -for one of the contestants. 
The hearing was consequently post- 
poned until Monday, Jan. 1, when an- 
other Judge would be sitting in that 
branch of New York's highest tribunal

The peace and quiet of Danvnie. m„ was 
disturbed Wednesday afternoon, Dec 27, by a 
shooting affair that happened in the Saratoga 
Hotel, and as the result of which Charles (H. 

SmJth, comedian of the Two Johns- Co., Ues at 
the point of death In the St. Elizabeth Hos- 

. It Is reported that F. O. Cooper, an actor 
of New Xork, visited Mrs. Cooper, also of the 
Two Johns Co., In Danville, and - he accused 
Smith of paying .too much attention to Her. 
Smith resented the accusation, it is said, which 
the more angered Mr. Cooper. Cooper, It Is 
alleged, then purchased a revolver and attacked 
Smith In the Litter's room at the Saratoga. 
Mr. Cooper claims that he entered Smlth'a room 
to talk the matter over peacefully, but that 
when he was attacked he defended himself. 

Mr. Smith was shot three times and will 
probably die.

T last San Francisco has another good 
inuslc publishing noose, which has 
been a long needed necessity on the 
coaet. , There has been no place In 
San' Francisco where s performer 
could 'go to learn a song until the Altoras Music 
Publishing Co. was formed and Incorporated. ■' 
'.'-'Mackeyandi, Jewell were ..playing vaudeville 
dates 'and could /not receive: recognition for a 
number of songs they had written. So they 
decided to quit the show business and to form 
a company of their own. They got . together 
and with the aid of Bicbard Sampsel, pianist; 
Phil. Price, vocalist, and August Schrocht, ar- 
ranger, : they incorporated the Alturas Music 
(Publishing; Co. . 

It can readily be seen that these gentlemen 
are making good because" 'they are all. hustlers 
and each does his own share of the work; 
thereare no Salaries to 'be paid- They have a 
reception : room, an arranging, a stock, a pri- 
vate and a piano room, all of which are kept 
in constant demand by performers learning new 
songs. The beauty of the new system Is the 
fact that, the new firm handles the songs of 
every pnbllsher in addition to their own, so 
:that the' performer has a. very large assort- 
ment from which to choose. 

In the same building is : « wholesale depart- 
ment, from which the trade is supplied, and a 

retail store is also located it MS OVarrell 
street, where, the public la gives a ohaace : to 
Mew- toe different: •songs.'. - m kola retail . star* 
1M1 teA •landst .and!:* singer wtas display enr- 
ery^song*«9|d( to Jpe. store,. 

^"That^Siese 'gentlemen have the right Idea ia 
verified by the increselng trade theyjsrte build- 
ing up- daily. Associated with' them Are F. CQIf- 
ford Harris, .the London lyric writer, and Ii. 8. 
Boberts, ' John J. Welsh, Allen Hi } Dougherty 
and IFrediN. Tracey, all of whom- are wen- 
known . writers. - - '".... ;.*ir'" 

The Alturas Music PnbMBldng Oo : . is sending' 
out; to the profession on receipt of stamp and 
program, their latest pablleations, namely: Mar- 
ble, That. Candy Girl , of Mine, rTll Take the 
Cliff House for Mine, I'll Be Home ' on Christ- 
mas Eve, It's Only Human Natnre, After All, 
In, Dear Old Georgia, and Good-bye. Bine Byes. 

The (professional quarters of the new music 
house is en the fourth floor of the MirniHIe 
building, 210 Powell street, San Francisco. 
These people are very courteous and polite and 
Invite the profession to call on them. ..' 

The latest publlf atlon by- this well-knowh firm 
Is Ach. Louis, a very funny Dutch song, and 
the: Man from.JOounty Cork, a comic Irish song. 
'Both these songs are being aung thronghout she 
east as well as on Hie coast. This concern 
promises to become, one of .the- leadma; ; ; pub- 
lishing, houses. In , the country and they are 
continually adding, to their, :11st of successes. 
Beginning this month they will Issue ten or-

A spirit of co-operation, wherein capital and 
labor are brought Into closer relations to each 
other, is springing up In Chicago, and the re- 
sult Indicates a, healthy and prosperous future 
In business affairs. Many large employers nave 
adopted the custom of rewarding their em- 
ployees at the end of each 'business year, either 
inthe form of extra wages, or by a share of 
the -profits of the business. Such a course nat- 
urally encourages the employee, "who, feeling 
that the more the employers earn, the greater 
Will be Ws reward. * '.-_■. ">:..;..,,..- 

:/ One-of the concerns to inaugurate this system 
In Its business is the United States Tent & 
Awning Co. On Saturday, Dec. 30, at 12:00 
o'clo ck noon, all the employees were taken by 
surprise by the announcement that- a -dinner 
would be served in the factory, and that they 
were all requested to be present and partake. 
The employees heartily accepted the Invitation; 
and after dinner Vice-President and Superin- 
tendent Walter F. Driver, addressed the em- 
ployees, thanking them for 1 their efforts '- for 
the past year,' and assuring them of the great- 
est consideration for their future work. Then, 
to the snrpries "of an, it -was announced that 
five per cent, of T the year's profits of the busi- 
ness was to be divided among the employees 
In the proportion of the -wages received by 
them, and the announcement was accompanied 
by : an envelope to each employee, containing 
the share enoted to him, ' given in the form 
ota New Tear's gift 

William Leeper, Edward P. Newmann, Jr., 
and: Bdward B. Idtxlnger, the other officials of 
iOmpany, made speeches to the employees, 
holding ont-to: 'them :the. prospect, that - If :the 
business eontinned -to grow during the coming 
year as it had developed in -the: past year, they 
would not only be treated the (same In the 
future, but their shares would be-^eorrespond- 
Ingly Increased. Many of the employees re- 
sponded by expressing their appreciation for 
the considerations shown* to' 'them, and the sen- 
timent ..among them -was that every/effort pos- 
sible -would be put forth to bring the business 
to the highest standard of efficiency. 
- In view of the fact that the United States 
Tent & Awning Co. has been in business -for 
only one year, this treatment Of! Its employees 
points the way to Its future unlimited 'success. 
From the date of its incorporation; 'this com- 
pany has advanced hy bounds in -'the: volnmeof 
its business, and to-day It Is easily -regarded 
as one of the foremost tent; awning and -can- 
vas enterprises in tSe United States. Its fu- 
ture saccess ana prosperity IB assured.

elties for Luna Park for next season. 


(See First Page.) 

The name of IngersoU is known to the pub- 
He wherever there are parks or park amuse- 
ment plants. Behind the. name Is Frederick 
IngersoU, whose likeness appears on the front 
page of this Issue of The Billboard. Mr. In- 
gersoU is. one of the most extensive park .oper- 
ators as well as one of the foremost creators 
of parks and park amusements In America. He 
Is a man of Indomitable energy, tireless per- 
sistency, remarkable Ingenuity and great re- 
sources. These attributes, coupled with -his 
foresight and keen discrimination in analysing 
the public tastes and tendencies, account for 
his prestige and power in the amusement 

Mr. Ingerson is still a young man. He be- 
gan a number of years ago by manufacturing 
slot machine devices. , The Industry grew un- 
til he became one of the principal operators 
In this country and abroad. About the time 
of the World's Fair, at Chicago, he designed 
and perfected the Figure Eight Roller Coaster. 
This immediately sprung into wide popularity 
and demonstrated great money earning capacity. 
Quick to discern the favorable Inclination of 
the popular taste, IngersoU gave .his entire 
attention:- to the origination and bunding) of 
other amusement devices, and In rapid succes- 
sion lie turned out successful models of grav- 
ity roads of various types, snch as water rides, 
laughing galleries, funny houses, shootlng-the- 
chutes, etc The Installation and operation of 
these amusement plants quite naturally led to 
the acquirement end operation of park proper- 
ties throughout the country. 

IngersoU now operates parks or amusement 
plants In the following cities: Pittsburg, 
Greensburg, Johnstown, Newcastle, Beading, 
Charteroi, DoOuesne, Pa.; Canton, Akron,' 
Toungstowh, Cedar Point, Cincinnati, Columbus, 
Cleveland, SteubenviHe, 0.; Atlantic City, N. 
J.; Coney Island, Rochester, Buffalo, Niagara 
Falls, -N. T.; Haverill, Boston, Mass.; Kansas 
City, Mo.; 'Bransrllle, Indianapolis, Michigan 
City, Ft. Wayne. South 'Bend. Ind.; Los An- 

feles, Cal.; Montgomery. Ala.; Grand Rapids, 
aglnaw, Detroit, South (Haven, jSt. Joseph, 
'Mich.; Des Moines, Davenport, ,Ia.; Toronto, 
Can.; Little Bock, Ark.; Fitchburg, Mass.; 
Chattanooga, Nashville, Tenn. 

■Last season Mr. IngersoU bunt and managed 
two great Lima parks in Pittsburg and Cleve- 
land. These monster exposition places .repre- 
sented the outlay of hundreds of thousands of 
dollars,: but their tremendous success was a 
revelation to the men In amusement affairs, 
and gave a powerful -impetus io -the- park, bond- 
ing business. IngersoU's methods of conduct- 
ing bis parks were stamped with public ap- 
proval. He gave .his .patrons the greatest con- 
cert bands, &nd:.. tbe-.high.est elass of acrobatic, 
equestrian, aerial and animal acts that were 

obtainable. Bands like the Innes, the Buss, 
ate New. York Marines, the Fanclulli, the Ca- 
pone, the Falrman and the Kilties playedi daily 
in the open air. --'■-. 4 

IngersoU, probably more than any single in- 
dividual In the amusement business, has dem- 
onstrated the financial stability of the exposi- 
tion amusement park and in all' of -his world- 
-wide operations has never -been- identilied: witb 
a failure. Good, wholesome amnsemehts are a 
staple commodity In the pubUC market, and it 
is the quality of the goods supplied — the at- 
tractions and conduct of -the resort — that. reg- 
nlates the price and demand. }''-■ 

Mr. IngersoU recently} secured 'an amusement 
concession from the Mexican government, and 
is now building a $500,000 amusement park in 
the City of Mexico. He is also engaged in 
four large park propositions in the' states, ; and 
his architects and.-designers' are- at work-on 
plans for parks In England and Australia for 
a French syndicate. 

IngersoU covers the entire field of financing, 
designing and -building -complete ,• parks, origl-- 
natlng -and building amusement, devices, grav- 
ity roads; building and producing park shows 
and novelties of all descriptions. He employs 
a large force of skilled artists and designers in . 
the general offices at Pittsburg, and his forces 
of engineers and builders are scattered over 
the -«ntlre ; continent.

The condition of the billboards in Covington, 
Ky., are probably the worst ever known since 
there was a billboard plant in that city. Owing 
to the strike of union billposters which has 
been on against the Covington Blllpostlng Co. 
for some time, business has fallen oil more 
than half, ao that there Is no paper to cover 
the hoards. Cincinnati theatres, at the re- 
quest of the Cincinnati bUlposters union, have 
stopped sending paper to Covington, and very 
little commercial paper Is being placed there. 
The condition of the boards has roused the 
citizens of Covington to agitate measures to 
abate the nuisance. 


The Independent BiUpostlng Co., of Wheel- 
ing, W. Vs., Is engaged in erecting 2,000 feet 
of iron boards. . This Is the first. opposition the 
Association has had In this vicinity, therefore 
a warm fight is looked for. The Independents 
have secured a number of good locations, and 
are fully able to put up a hot fight. They 
hare already announced a cut In price of fully 


Six- wheel truck Pullman Car; used last three years by Richards & Pringle's 
Minstrels. Equipped with steel wheels, and Baker heater, 2 state rooms, In- 
excellent repair; pass Inspection on any road. A bargain at One Thousand 
Dollars. Now at Topeka. Address, RUSCO & HOLLAND, Crawford OpfOk^Si 
House, Topeka, Kansas. 


The Billboard Is In receipt of several re- 
ports of the Denver Convention of the Bin- 
posters Alliance, and wishes to thank the sev- 
eral -writers. As the substance of these sto- 
ries has already appeared In these columns and 
our space Is limited, we are nnable to pub- 
lish them. 3*he favor is appreciated Just the 

'Cincinnati [Local of the Alliance seems to 
stand in with the theatre managers strong. 
It Succeeded In having aU theatre paper cut 
off the boards at Covington, Ky. 

Ceorge Ij. "Seymour is the recently elected 
financial secretary of Alliance Ideal No. 5, 
St Louis, Mo. 

It Is said that the objection to the election 
of S. P. Fenney as president of the National 
Alliance was caused by the beUef that be was 
a stockholder in the Cnrran Co., of Denver.

Memphis, Tenn., Boasts of the Greatest Park 
in the Southland. 


Think of it. A quarter of a million people to do business with 
in the liveliest and fastest growing town in the South — 5c car fare. 
Brains and money put '"Fairyland" in the front row. Every 
legitimate concession " welcome. Remember, it's a park for the 
masses and not "classes." Fairyland adjoins Memphis' only 
popular public park, enjoying the co-operation of the Park Com- 
missioners, the St.Car Co. and the people at large. Three special 
excursions each week from near-by towns. No gate admission. 
A change of sensational free acts each week. Extensive 
improvements now in course of construction, including a 
theatre 140x60 feet, a club house 40x80, and a sta- 
tion 40x75 and a score of ornamental structures for various

Thi* illustration shows the new Kleine Fire-Proof 
Motion Picture Machine, 1906 Model. 

PRICE $225.00. 

Kleine Rre-Proof Motion Picture Machine^ 
1906 Model. 

After a great deal of experimentation we have finally evolved a 
model which has not only passed the official Chicago inspection, 
but has met with the enthusiastic approval of exhibitors to 
whom the model has been shown. 

The various features embodied in this machine are intended to 
make it thoroughly practical as well as fire-proof. Theatres 
operating in towns which do not require precautions against fire 
will find this instrument a profitable investment if for no other 
reason than that it saves films in case of accident, and may pre- 
vent panics. 


A lamp-house entirely enclosed at all times, yet admitting of 
all necessary adjustments -of the lamp; equipped with wire net- 
ting and gauze according to city requirements. An electric lamp 
whose carbon-holders grip the carbons at all points, making per- 
fect contact arid holding carbons rigid; A lamp-house base which 
is absolutely impervious to heat. A heat shield between lamp 
and film, which is lowered by means of a treadle ; when the oper- 
ator removes his foot the shield returns automatically into place.. 
An upper reel-box made of aluminum into which the flaine cannot 
pass if from any cause the film catches fire. A receiving box into 
which exposed film passes. At the opening is a trap-door which 
is closed instantaneously by the operator in case of danger. Four 
stout ?Hnch steel supports, separately adjustable for inequalities 
in the floor, to support the complete machine. The moving pic- 
ture mechanism, lamp-house, etc., are placed upon a heavy alum- 
inum bed plate which rests upon the receiving film box. The 
lamp-house slides to the right and left for stereopticon adjust- 
ment. The crank which actuates the motion picture mechanism 
is fastened with screws and cannot siip off while in use. The 
motion picture inechanism is the Edison Exhibition Model, 
equipped with our special long, short or medium distance lenses, 
for stereopticon and moving pictures; as may be selected. But 
other mechanism can be used. The receiving film box is stoutly 
braced ; the entire machine is strong, arid will run without vibra- 
tion. Every machine bears the official approval stamp of the 
Department of Electricity of the City of Chicago when delivered. 

NOTE— For the benefit of exhibitors who are. not familiar with inspection regula- 
tions, we would explain that conditions are becoming more rigid even in smaller cities, 
and the' fires which are sometimes caused by moving picture machines can be easily 
avoided by the use of a machine as described. 

New York customers can inspect this instrument at our New 
York address, 127-129 W. 32d St. Main supply depot at our 
Chicago address.

In Milwaukee 

That Wm. A. Brady Might Best Chas. 
Frohman, Who is Gathering Ma- 
terial For the Same Kind 
of Play. 



January 13, 1906. 

THE recent light between Liebler & Co. 
and David Belasco, In which which the 
former skillfully moved The Squaiv- 
Man to New York to offset tile la t- 
ter's The Girl From the Golden West, 
and to establish a prior claim to the origin 
of that nature of drama, is having a parallel 
in a little episode now heing enacted upon the 
theatrical checkerboard In which William A. 
Brady and Charles Frohman figure most prom- 
inently, c ■ 

It is all on account or die poor Indian, who 
lias been -hounded about this country ever since 
tiie first arrival of the white man. No sooner 
had Charles frohman announced that he had 
sent. Mr. DeMille west to obtain local color for 
a new Indian drama, than Mr. Brady got busy 
About seven months ago, it Is said, Mr. Brady 
received from Donald MacLaren, of Milwaukee, 
a new Indian drama, entitled The Good For 
Naught. Mr. Brady laid the manuscript aside 
intending to produce It next season with Wil- 
ton Lackage or Robert Man tell In the lead- 
ing role. A thought struck Mr. Brady — he 
would have Grace George and her company 
Kive a single performance of Jhe new MacLaren 
drama In Milwaukee, and by that performance 
lie would establish his claim to the original 
Indian drama.: Miss George was going to Mil- 
waukee, anyway, and it was just the move. 

Accordingly, the first performance of The 
Good. For Naught was given Saturday night. 
Jan. 0,' in the Davidson Opera House at Mil- 
waukee. Grace George appeared with great dis- 
tinction^ as Adulola. the daughter of the great 
chief of the Okatchees. 

The Good For Naught does not treat of the 
Indian or to-day, but of the strange race that 
me whlteman found when he first landed upon 
this continent— when Indian braves were true 
braves, and before the war of extermination 
had begun. Lonawamba, the old chief, is grow- 
ing old and feeble, and his sight is falling. He 

S . e ^ cou . nc S of •■ tte; tr,be t0 decide «ho

there are so many suitors that it Is at last 
agreed that Adulola shall meet the young

Muss Louise Morewin. of The Heir to the 
Hooran Co., and a notice of whose Injury at 
"/^H** l °hIo, appeared in last week's issue 
of this paper, died at the Wesley Hospital, 
Chicago. HI., Tuesday evening, Jan. 2. of 

. Miss Morewln's ankle was crushed ln a fall 
down an elevator shaft at the Hotel Warden 
In Newark Dec. 26. She was taken to the 
West Main Street Sanitarium in Newark, where 
she remained until Sunday night, when she was 
taken by her mother to the hospital in Chi- 
cago. Here she was placed under the care of 
two of the most skillful surgeons to the Windj- 
City, but their efforts were fruitless, and Miss 
Morewin died late Tuesday night, the victim 
of lockjaw. 

Miss Morewin was the daughter of Madam «. 
t, Meyers, of 235 Michigan avenue. Chicago. 
She was a woman of much refinement, and was 
considered a competent actress. For some time 
she had been playing the role of the mother- 
,n ;! aw ^ ln Tbe Helr to the Hoorah. and it is 
said that next season she would have had a 
much more prominent part ln a new niay 
She enjoyed the friendship of a host of people 
In the profession, and her untimely death is 
the cause of much sorrow. 


Greene's Opera House at Cedar Rapids, la., 
celebrated its- twenty-fifth -anniversary Dec. 28. 
The house opened Dec. 28. 18S0. under the 
management of T. H. Sellers. The opening 
attraction was Emma Abbott in The Bohemian 
GW. Both Miss Ahbott and Mr. Sellers are 
now dead. The biggest business In the his- 
tory of the bouse was done on the night of 
^PSL M ' 1888 > wh en the receipts reached 
93,205. Booth and Barrett were the attrac- 
tion. The receipt book for that evening bean 
the name of I. H. Magonlgle, the well-known 


David Belasco. having seen his latest com- 
pleted play. The Girl From the Golden West, is 
already bard at work on another, which he 
probably will present In the spring. He will 
not_ tell anything about It. except that It 
deals with a locality, a period, and -types of 
character altogether different from any that he 
has offered heretofore. It is understood, how* 
fj er> J 8 ^* the scene will he laid in America. 
Mr. Belasco has produced so many plays of 
other countries that he to inclined, for reUef, 
to come back to America.

iHB winter so far has not been

up to Christmas the snow had not been deep 
enough to interfere with the passenger trains 
and communication continues with Prince Ed- 
ward Island. 

WaSbbuni has an Uncle Tom's Cabin up 
there and is getting nice business. The show 
Is not a strager to Nova Scotia, and the natives 
turn out to great numbers to see It- Recently 
Washburn got $185, in the D. J. T. A. ball at 
Truro, my informant writes, and any one ac- 
quainted with the limited capacity of that hall 
will see that the show had *em coming. Then 
again the D. J. T. A. house ds owned "by a re- 
ligious denomination and fully two-thirds of 
the people would not enter the nan under any 

Business in the Ohio towns seems to be Im- 
proving with the new year. It was very bad 
until Christmas, consequently the improvement 
will be gladly welcomed by house and traveling 

Harry Rosenthal recently Joined Along the 
Kennebec as advance agent and is making a 
splendid showing. 

Gus Sun will shortly open the Lyceum Theatre 
at Springfield. O.. as a combination bouse. He 
bad planned to open it on Christmas, bnt he 
conld not get it ready in time. 

The Missouri GW Co. enjoyed a Christmas 
spread at St. 'Mary's, O. In addition to the 
members of the company, Ambrose and Edward 
Kohler and their families, ot Lima, O., and 
Miss Marie Grogan, of Chicago, were present. 

The Railroad Jack Co- had its Christmas 
banquet at Dayton, end it also passed off pleas-

Ed. Back is again this season managing the 
Grand Opera House at Paulding Ohio. He took 
the house late ln October when there were no 
bookings, bnt he has succeeded in getting at- 
tractions and is dolus; a nice business. 

John Neer, advertising agent of the Fanrot 
Opera House at Lima, Ohio, piloted a female 
baseball team through Canada last season, and 
next summer will take the same team through 
the northwest- 
Rodney Lee. of the Toledo Blade, goes after 
Geo. Cohan, because he pokes fun at the Toledo 
critics who saw little merit in Us Forty-five 
Minutes From Broadway. The Blade says that 
Cohan's sncces made him get swelled on him- 
self. Cohan seems to have a great deal of fun 
with the critics frequently, by giving them 
little "Jabs" ln his Spotlight. *""*"• 



Messrs. Kennedy A Westfall. managers of 
Joseph Murphy, vigorously deny the reported re- 
tirement of the well known Irish comedian. On 
the contrary, assert his managers, Mr. Mur-

to come. It is a fact, however, that Mr. Mur-

night stands, but he wnt continue to be seen" * 
In all the larger cities as has heen his ens--*

^™eU e ./tter«T th*t_the new farce Is 
abig hit and there Is no twiddling about the 
matter. Joe Weber and his big. list of fa- 
vorites were right up_to thejnlnnte to the

■g^ performance went off -exceedingly smooth 

t0 Twlddle-T^Sddle 1s a musical farce In two 
acts. Edgar Smith .--Is responsible for the dia- 
logue a^ lyrics and Maurice lev! wrote the 
music, tt Smith ever put any seriousness Into 
the piece It dropped xmt.^ long before Joe and 
his company ever got hold of It. Lite tne 
former Weber successes the new _piece is not

because there Is enough doing aH the time to 
Intoxicate Witt hilarity, tb^ost^rtous.

other successful run In Weber's Theatre. 

The theatre was crowded the opening night, 
in fact you had to buy your- seats early for

It was Mr. CHara's first appearance as a 
star, nevertheless it was under the most au- 
spicious ; circumstances and the Irish stoger- 
' actor was accorded a welcome that almost 
reached the iiroportlons of an ovation. Of an 
attractive personality and possessing a rich and 
melodious voice, Mr. O'Hara took well with the 
American audiences. 

Mr. Blarney "From Ireland Is of the Blaney 
type, but combined with the Blaney thrills 
there Is plenty of Irish humor which puts the 
players to advantage with the audiences that 
llie this yarlety of comedy. Mr. Blaney prob- 
ably does not claim" for the new piece that 
It is a literary hit, hut it wOl serve Its pur- 
pose, tnar of -making Mr. O'Hara popular In 
the popular-priced houses.

nlng Ms audiences upon first appearance, o* a fine stage presence, betas <>ZZnurU JnJk tlk 
and possessed of a splendid voice, Mr. Donovan, or Jack, as he Is familiarly called has 
fonnd^lt not a difficult matter to portray many roles that to a less fortunately endowed player 
would htve been almost Impossible. 

Christmas week the weather was most de- 
lightful and every manager found his house _ 
entirely too small to accommodate the de- 
mand. In fact, the floating population of the 
Metropolis of the West— the Vest Pocket Edi- 
tion of New York— shows the healthy growth 
of our city In every line of business, with 
eight regular houses, ten vaudeville theatres, 
all charging admission, and five large concert 
halls, we can hold our own with the best of 
them. The new year will see five new houses 
onen for business— The Bell, Colonial, Sixteenth 
Street, Oriental and North Beach with a pos- 
sibility of one in the Richmond District, and 
the bie Dreamland, modeled alter the already 
famous White City of Chicago, only on a larger 

Alice Nielsen was greeted wltn tirandegHis 
aonlause upon her appearance In _Don fsb- 
quale at the Tlvoli Dec 28. The house was . 
packed with the elite, of the city, and the 
performance was much appreciated. The fact 
that the engagement was limited to one even- 
ing performance and one matinee caused many 

Bob Fltzslmmons, the defeated pugilist, kept 
the Alhambra full the entire week of his en- 
gagement In A Fight For Love. The late write- 
ups, caused by the desertion of his , wife, kept 
the ticket sellers busy. Besides, Mr. Fltssim- 
mons Is a favorite to this city. 

Florence Roberts, the most popular Califor- 
nia actress, is booked for an engagement at 
the Columbia the first week In March.

period of five years.

mas tree. Mortimer M. Dodge, the genial and 
popular resident manager, was presented wim 
a handsome gold mounted umbrella by the 
stage hands.

Archie Levy, the booking agent, is as proud 
as a peacock of a new watch which he de- 
lights in showing to hlB many friends. The 
watch Is a real European novelty, set to mother

That James J. Corbett Is a real actor, ca- 
pable of portraying real comedy and p athos 
was demonstrated upon the opening perform- 
ance of Cashel Byron's Profession. The ex- 
pugillst wss accorded an ovation and so hearty 
was the applause that he was forced to re- 
spond time and again. After having bowed his 
acknowledgments more than a dozen times. 
Mr. Corbett stepped to the footlights and asked 

the audience if it really meant It. Another 
burst of applause convinced him. 

Cashel Byron's Profession Is that of a pu- 
gilist. Cashel is to love with a girl of cul- 
ture and refinement. The subject is dramati- 
cally treated, and with its tender lore Plot, 
together with the wit and sarcasm that Shaw 
puts into Ills novels, it makes an excellent

The opening of the new Bodgers Opera House. 
Port Arthur, Tex., Dec. 22, was a Dig suc- 
cess to every respect. Rowland 4t Clifford's 
big attraction. .Dora Thome, was the initial 

bill, and every one of the 000 seats dn the 
new theatre was taken. „ , 

Just before the first curtain Mayor Landes 
escorted Manager Bodgers to the stage and 
introduced him with -words of welcome and 
congratulation. Mr. Bodgers responded In a 
happy veto expressing his appreciation of the 
cordial reception given him and his enter- 


if. F. Smith, correspondent for The Billboard 
at Coshocton, Ohio, takes exception to an ar- 
ticle dn the Issue of Dec. 23 In which E. E. 
Meredith stated that the show business to the 
smaller Ohio towns suffered greatly because ot 
roller skating rinks. 

Continuing Mr. Smith Bays^'-In regard to 
Coshocton having three rinks, I will say that 
the town never had but two rinks and one of 
them has been leased to the Fountain Dry 
Goods Co. for a retail store. We have but 
one rink now In Coshocton. The article also 
states that, the big shows do not get the usual 
amount of business. Here Is a case. My 
Wife's Family took over $900. Christmas mati- 
nee and evening. MIsb Janls took over SOOO. 
which Is more than she took In Newark or 
ZanesvlUe. It is true that the smaller shows 
do not get the larger business, but it Is that 
way all tne year outside of the larger townf- 
Manager Callahan and the officers of the. Sixth 
Street Theatre Co. are very well pleased with 
this season's business."

the evening performance at the New Amster- 
dam and the Grand Theatres.

cause for complaint.::

Music, has expressed himself as being highly

The Yankee Consul opened Thursday even- 
ing for five performances and did big business. 
There is . nothing:: more beantiful In modem

A.; Braden who resigned his position as general 
manager for Col. Savage to branch out as a 
theatrical manager on his own account. Charles 

A. Barton, who has for many years been in 
the employ of Gna Hill as a manager of his 
road attractions, will succeed Mr, Cooley as 
general manager of the HiU enterprises. The 
Rlalto has not felt so good over any announced 
theatrical engagement In many moons as It til 
when the fact of Mr. Cooley's transfer of his 
services to Col.: Savage was made known. No 
man in local theatrical life is so unlversaliy 
popular as JHollls EL vCooley. He Is president 
of the Green Room Club; and only a few months 
ago was elevated to the distinguished station of 
a thirty-third: degree In ■'■; Masonry, an honor 
which .bad neveri before been conferred upon a 
theatrically associated person. His trail of 
popularity in the show hnslness starts back in 
Wichita. Ran., where, years ago, be managed 
the theatre In that town. 

After leaving Wichita Cooley became . the 
excursion agent -for the promoters of the Cyclo- 
rama showing the battle of Missionary Ridge. 
Two years; later he arrived In Kansas City as 
manager of the Ninth Street Theatre. It was 
hx that position that he 'laid- the foundation 
of the tremendous acquaintance which he now 
possesses. Seven years of managerial' life In 
Kansas Clty_ led to his becoming the: ■ manager 
of Hopkins* Trans-Oceanlcs. one of the best- 
known organization of its day. He next man- 
aged the Kimball Opera Co. r of which . Co- 
rinne was the- star. Some years ago the firm 
of Davhr 4: Keogh needed a general manager, 
and they "wisely selected Cooley.; Jtater on he 
went with the :Bi;lpn /Pheatre Circuit as gen- 
eral manager, acting at_.the same time as man-

With trie close of tier second anrl last 
week at the Majestic, Marie CahiH, on Jan. 6, 
finished her; third -New Xork engagement In as 
many months. ■ Moonshine wears well and the 
assemblages at John S. Flaherty's bearitlfnl 
theatre were large and enthusiastic. The good 
things in the piece go in pairs; to-wit: Miss 
CahiH and the spotlight; George Beban and 
vivacity, the two sprightly girls on the right 
end of the line and H. Guy Woodward and 
Frederic Paulding, the diplomats. Of Miss Ca- 
hOl it can be truthfully said ; that her spot- 
light selfishness Is unworthy Of v so: clever- a 
woman as she. Nobodyx else has it and 'sev- 
eral members of ■ the company need It much 
worse than she ever could. Her buoyancy of 
spirit, ber: magnetism: and her noachelant grasp 
of bubbling comedy mark her the truest sort 
•f a comedienne- ©eonee; Beban :; covers ,'■ him- 
self with glory and lends much life and action 
to every scene or situation he 'engages In. The 
two diplomats are the real artistic element of 
the piece- H. Guy Woodward makes a dlg- 
■dfied and forceful a^ppnrlnir Rn^stan. and his 
perfection In make-up Is only rivalled bv the 
Japanese type represented by Frederick Pauld- 

ing. The plot of the play centers largely noon 
these two characters, and It was a wise se- 
lection which entrusted these important roles 
to these clever gentlemen. In Moonshine there 
is much merriment, several girls whose near- 
beauty Is forgotten In their sprightllness, and 
there are several catchy songs well sung. Dick 
Temple makes a clever leading man, and the 
entire company Is not at all badly balanced. 
In fact to bask in Miss CahllTs Moonshine Is 
to spend a pleasant evening, without ninth wear 
and tear upon the nerve forces. 


As a result of negotiations which 
have been pending for some time, Thompson 
& Dundy nave purchased Fort George. This 
fact can be stated with, more than . the ordi- 
nary assurance of correctness usually attend- 
ant upon deals of such an 'important nature. 
The deal -was closed Just -before Frederick 
Thompson sailed for Europe a fortnight ago. 
This Is the first published Information bear- 
ing upon the deal. Fort George has for many 
years been a modestly popular resort, situated 
on a high bluff which overlooks the Hudson 
river just this side of Spuy ton Duyvle. It is 
reached by surface electric cars, and is con- 
veniently handy to transfer passengers from 
the Subway. In the hands of Thompson & 
(Dundy it is sure to blossom forth next summer 
as an immensely popular resort. As Lnna Park 
Is more than a score of miles removed from 
Fort; George, there will be no Immediate com- 
petition between the Coney Island scenes of 
gaiety and the Hudson river resort. Given the 
mammoth, and vastly popnlar Hippodrome; the 
beantlful and enchanting allurements of Luna 
Park, and the more than probable glories of 
Fort George, the name of Thompson & Dnndy 
wfll easily retain Its: position as a household 
word } : among Gothamltes who find that hall- 
mark a name to be conjured with in all that 
Is attractive, unusual and worthy of patron- 
age in the way of popnlar amusement of the 
very -highest class. 

Jim Corbett, ex-pugilist anfl vaude- 
vUle headliner, opens at Daly's Theatre, Mon- 
day evening In Cashel 'Byron's Profession. This 
Is the result of .a hurried determination to send 
The Crossing ; upon Its- one-night stand way, 
minus any rejoicing. New York theatregoers 
have failed to patronize Winston Churchill's 
play In numbers sufficient to warrant its play- 
ing: out the; three weeks originally alloted to 
it at this theatre. Corbett's manager, Henry 
B. Harris; held the time Immediately follow- 
Ing The Crossing- and -by canceling ; two weeks 
out of town. moves in a fortnight earlier than 
wast intended. Personally. James J. Corbett 
Is one of the nicest men It has ever been my 
pleasure to meet, talk to and know, and It Is 
not ray intention to say aught against him 
as a man among men. Bat as an actor among 
actors and a start at 'Daly's Theatre" Mr '. Cor- 
bett's advent may possibly make Augustln Daly

The element of high art and the 
more prosaic principles of union labor clashed 
last week at the Metropolitan Opera House. 
The chorus declined to carol unless there .was 
a substantial Increase In their stipend. Herr 
Conried said be would not recognize the mem- 
bers of the chorus as members of a labor 
union, and the chorus walked out Wednesday. 
On Friday evening Trlsta and Isolde was sung 
with a chorus which comprised soloists of the 
Metropolitan forces in Its: membership. ; Some- 
one figured it out that the average pay of 
the soloist chorus would make the figures 
amount to $2,000 a night for the work. This 
was the situation at the Metropolitan Opera 
House Saturday at noon. The oil of high art 
and the water of union labor refused to mix. 
However, Saturday afternoon there was an 
agreement reached, and Manager Conried 
granted $20 weekly for six performances and 
$2.50 for each extra performance. Had the 
strike' not been, settled,' would: the Hod Carriers' 
Union have boycotted the grand opera enter- 
tainments, or would the Dish Washers' Amal- 
gamation have withheld its patronage? No 
end of complications might have been possible.

lowing: "We are now in our eighteenth suc-

While the 3owery Burlesquers were 
playing the Gaiety Theatre at Pittsburg, Pa., 
recently. Manager Jos. Hurtlg was pleasantly 
surprised by being presented with an elegant 
Japanese sUk quilted smoking jacket and a 
lounging robe of the same material. The pres- 
ents were from Mr. , Hurtlg's ' bunch of good- 
looking chorus girls which includes Babydoll 
Wilbur. Rose Moore, Anna Romalne. Flo Rus-

ing robe.

THE first week of the New Tear 
proved to be a continuation of the 
splendid business enjoyed by theatri- 
cal -managers during the week preced- 
ing the holidays. 
Chicago has been having somewhat of a sur- 
feit of musical comedies, for some time past, 
with the result that the attendance of some or 
the houses was not so large as might have been 
expected. If It could only be arranged that 
the drama and musical pieces could be bap- 
plly balanced and dovetailed, there is no doubt 
it would yield greater satisfaction to theatre- 
goers generally, and, besides, prove more sat- 
isfactory to the boi-offlces. 

,Q3lte a number of changes are registered at 
many .of * the houses for tbe current week. Sev- 
eral of these will be highly welcomed, too, as 
they will afford a much-needed change from the 
musical atmosphere that has prevailed so long 
at several houses. . 


The Grand Opera House is filled to 
the doors at every performance of The Wizard 
of Oz.. - 'It seems as .If ' Montgomery and Stone, 
in their original and mirthful creations. The 
Tlntvoodm'an and ■ Tbe Scare Crow will always 
be in strong demand. Pretty Mona . Desmond 
and charming Allene Carter are also bright fa- 
vorites. \ - 

Before the; appearance of The Ham Tree at 
tbe Colonial, the title, furnished.' a puzzle to 
frequenters of the "Theatre Beautiful." Of 
course, everybody knew Mclntyre and Heath, 
but their relations with a Ham Tree or any other 
kind of a tree except a genealogical one could 
not be surmised. Even now the title is as 
much a nuzzle as ever, but it Is not lost sight 
of in the acceptable and mirthful entertain- 
ment provided.. Much praise Is given tbe sing- 
ing and dancing chorns of this production which 
is without a doubt tbe best seen in this city 
for a long time. Attractive Jobyna Holland 
forms a striking stage picture In ensembles that 
include a number of exceedingly pretty girls. 
It is not generally known that Miss Holland 
Is the wife, of Arthur Stringer, the well known 
New York poet and novelist. 

His Honor, the Mayor continues Its long and 
successful run with as much popularity as ever 
at the Chicago Opera House. Blanche Ring, 
John Slavin and Mabel Barrlson, and — let it not 
be overlooked — the Pony Ballet, the best ever 
seen In the city, are winning admirers weekly. 

At tbe LaSalle The Umpire Is winning splen- 
did support from the public. Cecil Lean has 
made a big hit In the title role. This week 
will be the sixth of the run of the piece. 


The most notable event in theatrical 
circles during New Year's week was, without 
doubt, the opening of the Majestic Theatre. 

This magnificent modern structure, which em- 
bodies every feature 'and every contrivance that 
Ingenuity could conceive for the comfort, safety 
end entertainment of Its patrons, easily stands 
at the head of all theatres devoted to vaude- 
ville, if not. Indeed, to the legitimate as well. 
The most artistic eye is pleased by a survey 
of tbe Interior from any and everv point The- 
restful and well toned colors prevailed through- 
2 ■ the lnterlor ; tn e magnificent lobbies, with 
their picture galleries of masterpieces; the 
noble auditorium and cozy balconies; tbe gallery 
with the best appointments ever placed in a 
theatre; the spacious and artistically finished 
smoking-room, and the sumptuous rest room for 
the ladles: all form striking and beantlful ob- 
jects of a grand and harmonious -whole. 

No less than sixteen expensive numbers 
formed the opening program, and everyone was 
thoroughly enjoyed by audiences that thronged 
tte theatre nightly. The program for the 
second week promises to surpass its predecessor 
in excellence and talent. Some of tbe leading 
features are Leslie and Dalley. In their sketch, 
ooing Abroad; Rose Stahl, the Chorns Lady; 
Charles -Prelle, Lew Sully, the Melanl Trio, 
Hie Three Navaros, etc.

■Perhaps the most prominent of the new plays 
will prove to be Maurice Maeterlinck's Monna 
Vanna, which will be seen at the Garrlck, 
Monday evening, for the first time In Chi- 
cago. The occasion will be notable as being 
the first appearance in Chicago of Bertha Ka- 
llch as a star In an English-speaking role. 
Mme. Kallch is a Roumanian and the make- 
up of her company i is remarkable for the va- 
rious nationalities represented. Henry Kolker^ 
who plays the part of Guide, husband of Monna 
vanna. is a German by birth; Henry Stanford, 
who plays the role of Prlnzlvalle. Is an Eng- 
lishman; Frederick Perry, who plays Marco Co- 
lonna, is an American ; and Robert Milton is a 
Russian. Notwithstanding the diversity of na- 
tionalities, it Is stated that the purest and 
most perfect English Is spoken by evervone in 
the company. Scenlcally, the play is said 
tp be exceedingly artistic and beantlful, espe- 
cially the dawn scene in the third act where 
the ravishing beauties of an Italian sky be- 
trary the hand of a master. 

Patrons of the Illinois will welcome Grace 
George In The Marriage of William Ashe as 
a successor to Fritz In Tammany Hall, which 
was scarcely up to the standard demanded bv 
them. Judging from Its New York ran at" the 
Garrlck Theatre, this play should enjov a popu- 
lar ran here, as from all accounts it gives 
Miss fiporge tbe best opportunity ' she has ever 
had. As the play Is an adaptation from the 
■book of the same name by the clever English 
authoress, Mrs. Hnmphrey Ward, Its produc- 
tion here is awaited with more than usual 


In order : to make way for one of the 
three promising plays that will be- produced dur- 
ing the week, a prime favorite has been with- 
drawn in Maxine Elliott, whose success in Her 
Great Match might well be termed a trinmph. 

The, Powers Theatre, where this clever Clvde 
Fltcn play has nightly attracted overflowing "au- 
diences for two weeks, is to Chicago what the 
old Lyceum Theatre and Daly's Theatre, under 
the old regime, were to New York. The clien- 
tele of Powers' Is conceded to be tbe most ex- 
clusive and Intelligent in Chicago, and when 
Manager Powers succeeds In providing a play 
that appeals to those who freqnent -his eozv 
theatre, as' be generally does, it can alwavs be 
expected that standing room will be at a* pre- 

At none of her previous appearances here did 
Miss Elliott as convincingly prove her claim to 
be an actress of commanding talents than she 
did In the happy vehicle which Clyde Fitch 
has so cleverly constructed. It is with regret 
that theatregoers say farewell to her at the 
present time, notwithstanding that Her Great 
Match will be replaced by Georce Ade's latest 
comedy, Just Out of College. Miss Elliott and 
her company could easily have remained here 
for four weeks longer, but the complications in 
bookings must not be overlooked, and system 
must be observed at whatever sacrifice.

JUST now everywhere in London 
tbeatredom one finds bustling, bustling 
preparations for the pantomime season. 
Truly, some of* the pantomimes have 
opened already; one, even, as early as 

like and of November. The big day wben the 
▼sat majority of Xmas plays start their sea- 
■on. Is, howeTer, Boxing JDay— the day after 
Christmas.. This year pantomimes will occupy 
Khe hoards off twenty-six London theatres, be- 
sides at least a dozen others which will pro- 
ton "children's plays."* If the older folk were' 
not really children grewn-np r they might well 
W Jealous of the Increasing attention theatre 
manasers pay to the rising generation. Sat 
as the grown-ups In England look: forward to 
toe annual Christmas pantomimes with quite 
asmnch Interest as do the children, the man- 
ager is quite content In believing that if the 
•alldren like his Christmas entertainment, they 
will bring their parents to his theatre with 


Cinderella and Aladdin are the two 
BM«t popular themes for pantomime this year. 
Out ef the one hundred and twenty produc- 
tion* in London and the Provinces, eaah of 
ttese subjects have been chosen fifteen times. 
Xext in popularity comes -Dick Whittington, 
with fourteen. This is the third year in sue- 
•eaalon that these subjects have led the way. 

In former years the rule was that panto- 
aikne* were played at one theatre and re* 
malned there until the conclusion of the run; 
aow, the pantomime that does not go on the 
■oad at the end of six or eight weeks, is an 
exception. For this reason, the season is 
prolonged much more than formerly. 


Much has been recently written, said 

aaat sung of the decline of pantomimes of the 
ttarlequinade. which at one time was the pan 
tomime itself. 

If we study the authorities on the subject- 
She learned people able to trace anything from 
anything — we shall find the •Harlequin is the 
god Mercury, with a short rod or sword to 
aoake himself invisible; that Columbine is 
Psyche, and that Pantaloon is Charon, the fer- 
ryman of Hades, Remembering what a par- 
Sicnlarly amiable and Judicially aldermanlc old 
gentleman. iPantaloon invariably Is. this last 

statement win cause surprise. Tie clown is 
Momiifl the buffoon of Elysium, the god of 
salllery and wit. with a gaping mouth in imi- 
tation of the ancient masks. To what base 

nses may a family of distlnjrnlshed mythological 
decent be reduced! The "buffoon of Elysium" 
■educed to stealing sausages, warming pokers, 
greasing slides, and daubing the trousers of 
Dundreary swells with black paint. Psyche, 
aimlessly gaboltlng across the stage in deli- 
rious gauze, and the herald Mercury, suffering 
adjurations from the stage manager to "go 
quick and come off quick'*! Looking through 
the bills published throughout the country at 
this present Christmas season, is it seen that 
harlequinades are either wholly omitted or 
woefully abbreviated. In some cases there is 
just one scene left — a grudging concession to 
the qualms of conservatism. The* clown, how- 
aver, is no longer the ruler and dispenser at 
the feast. Managers are troubled more about 
their "principal boys" and "principal girls" so 
Stat almost anyone will do to play the poor 
•Id merryman and bis now more of less melan- 
•faoly family. 


But though the harlequinade has 
•Tactically disappeared, there is no doubt that 
the number of pantomimes produced each suc- 
ceeding season is on the increase, and also 
(Alas! say the managers) the cost of pro- 
ducing them has increased to formerly unheard 
•f sums. A. pantomime must be gorgeous to 
earn money nowadays. Therefore, a failure 
saeana a loss of a fortune. 


The principal artists in pantomime 
are aecruited from the ranks of the vaudeville 
profession, and this year one sees a surprising 
■umber of American performers on the English 
pantomime bills. The music hall naturally suf- 
fers, when a couple of hundred acts are taken 
from the halls to supply casts for the pan- 
tomimes. This, of course, opens a market for 
American and Continental performers, so we 
are n*t surprised to- see numerous acts from 
"over the water.**" both east and west, on the 
•urrent music hall programs. 

Caron and Herbert, who closed at the Palace 
last Saturday are the last to Join the panto- 
mime ranks. They open to-day In Liverpool 
at the Royal, and we expect to hear reports of 
a big success. For at the Palace they proved 
that they had "goods" of which the English 
public secuned never to get enough. 


Naturally with all the pantos open- 
ing there has been little doing this conple of 
weeks in the London dramatic world. 

The Pioneer Society produced The Firefly, 
a story of diplomatic intrigue, by William 
Toynbee, at the Sea la Dec. 17. 

At the JDuke- of York's Peter Pan was sne- 
sessfnlly revived Dec. 10. which together with 
She three provincial productions. The Partlk'ler 

dred and ten. Albert Jackson, who buys largely 
for American clients at local sales, was the 
largest buyer. 

Charley's Aunt will be revived at Terry's 
during the Christmas holidays, commencing on 
Boxing Day, with Mr. Brandon Thomas in his 
original part of Sic 'Francis Chesney. 


Percy French, the author of Noah's 

Ark., the children's Christmas play at the Wal- 
dorf Theatre, is an astonishing versatile man. 
His "one man show" of water colors at the 
Modern Gallery has only just dosed, as we 
hear the announcement of his work as a play- 

Mr. Trench, who belongs to an old Irish 
family, inherited literary tendencies from, his 
father, who was a fine classical scholar. He 
was one Of the best of Ireland landlords who 
retained their popularity through all the trou- 
blous times, though this tenants were sufficiently 
up-to-date to withhold their rent for many 

Mr. French, was educated at Trinity College, 
Dublin, and chose engineering for a profession. 
It was while holding a position under the Board 
of Works, Ireland, that he began to write some 
of bis best known songs. Including the Song 
of the Prophets and Phil, the Fluter, etc. 

•He was offered the editorship of the Irish 
comic paper. The Jarvey, about 1890. and 
was then well-known on the concert platform as 
an amateur of some repute, and also as an 
author to some extent. The Jarvey only lived 
a couple of years, but Mr. French had defi- 
nitely turned his back on engineering and con- 
tinued to make his living by writing, painting 
and entertaining. Half a dozen years or so 
ago he came to London, where he speedily made 
a place for himself as one of the most popular 
and original entertainers. 

A school for the forty odd children who are 
engaged in the production of Noah's Ark, is 
now established In the theatre. The classes 
are held In the wardrobe room daily, and the 
services of an efficient master and mistress 
have been ensured. This Is in accordance with 
the London County Council regulations. 

* Robespierre is the title of a new 
sketch which is going strong in the "halls." 
The trifle takes the form of an episode In the 
life of the great 'French revolutionist In which 

a. girl plays a game of cards with the latter 

for the head of her lover, who has been con- 
demned to death. In order to win she cheats, 
and a fight with rapiers follows. The girl Is 
wounded and then Robespierre discovers that 
she is the pretty aristocrat that he has loved 
at a distance. The Inevitable happens. Robe- 
spierre offers to save her lover if she will 
marry him, and just as matters 'have reached a 
flimm the lover bursts into the room, having 
been liberated through a mistake. Of course, 
the stern man relents, forgives and all Is hap- 

A new and brilliant scene Just produced at 
the Coliseum, is In Bells and Motley, in which 
31iss Mabel Love appears. 

In a village in Arcadia May Day arrives 
and the villagers are without a "Queen of the 
May," inasmuch as the test at the Maypole 
has left them in perplexity, the votes having 
been evenly distributed between the six maid- 
ens who contested for the position. Gaffer 
Brown, an ancient rustic suggests that the 
claimants be made to dance, and the -May 
crown be given to the best dancer. This fails 
to solve the difficulty, as the six are voted to 
dance equally well. A traveling jester and a 
fair maid in motley come upon the scene and 
sing and dance, after which the villagers 
unanimously acclaim the maiden as their 

While executing some very pretty dances to 
entrancing music the Lord Chamberlain of Ar- 
cadia and several courtiers enter In haste and 
make obeisance at the feet of the maiden 
who turns out to be the disguised Princess of 
Arcadia, whose love of adventure has caused her 
to wander far from her father's court. The 
festivities proceed and conclude with a stir- 
ring chorus "All HaiL" 

Among the American performers 

who will eat their Christmas dinners in London 
this year are Bobbins, iDare Devil Schreyer, 
Burke. Moller and Teller, Belle Davis, Jordan 
and Harvey, Jnlie Mackey, The Gothams, Col- 
lins and Hart. Cliff Ryland, Booker and Xarbis,

Monday, Dec. 14, was an unfortunate day for 
several American gymnasts. At Cardiff, one 
of McPhee and Bill's bars broke, steel core 
and all, while they were doing a double trlek. 
Hill broke his collar bone and McPhee frac- 
tured his leg. At Chelsea Palace. Jack Stack 
threw his shoulder out and at the Lyceum, Tom 
Morris of Morris and Morris fell, sustaining In- 
juries to his back which will compel him to lay 
off for several weeks.

The rapidity with which variety 
houses have sprung up In London in the last 
few years Is almost phenomenal, but schemes 
for new ventures continue to be prolific. The 
latest news is that Messrs. Thompson & Dundy, 
the managing directors of the palatial New 
York Hippodrome, are about to extend their 
enterprising efforts to London, where negotia- 
tions are pending for the erection of a com-

The recent engagement of The Darling of 
the Gods at Convention Hall was little less 
than a personal triumph for Robert T. Haines, 
the leading man. Mr. Haines is one of the 
most widely known of the "native sons" who

atrical world and that his friends here appre- 
ciate the height to which he has risen was

ment Co. has withdrawn its road organizations,

prosperous in the history of this successful

has been most gratifying thus far, and a con- 
tinuance will mean the posting of a new rec- 
ord. ■■

iencea. There la a treat la store for the Keith 

The Blenore Sisters, who are playing the 
Keith Circuit, are making a feature ,f the 
new Irish song, entitled iArry. The Blenore Sis- 
ters are at the top In their line and deservedly 
so, as they are always on tihe look-out for novel- 
ties and good songs. Professional copies of 
Larry can be bad on application; there are no 

T^^ HB new production , The Press Agent, 
which Is a musical comedy background 
with the talents of Peter Dailey, Is 
now running to large audiences at 
the Lew Fields' Theatre. During the 
action of the first scene a very novel ditty, en- 
titled I Think It Must be Lov*. Is Interpolated. 
This Is sung by nearly all the members of the 
company, who render a verse each. Tbe moat 
striking thing In connection with tbe song, how- 

-ever, is the staging of it by R. H. Burnslde. 

who can think up more original business for a. 
song over night than the average stage man- 
ager can In a month. In the case of I Think 
It Must be Love, Mr. Burnslde has originated 
an episode In stagecraft that causes a tremen- 
dous sensation, for he has cut ten trap doors 
In the stage, and at a given signal these fly 
■open, disclosing an equal number of crimson 
hearts, In which presently appear the facea of 
ten pretty girls. This remarkable and strik- 
ing illustration of the text of the song, added 
to the rendition by the various artists of a 
verse each secures for the song as many as 
twenty encores at a single performance, a fact 
Which makes the song the featnre of the show. 
It was written by Raymond A. Browne.

in Greater New York, Is Miss Josle Antoinette,

The first form of The Billboard, in- 
cluding the last eight advertising 
pages, goes -to press Saturday morn- 
ing. No advertisements for these 
pages can be given the desired posi- 
tion, and no changes can be made in 
standing ads on any of these pages 
unless the copy reaches us by noon

be accepted after noon Monday. 

That the instrumentality of The 
Billboard in adjusting- conditions to 
the satisfaction of both managers and 
performers on the western vaudeville 
circuits was more effective than even 
the most sanguine among those in- 
volved dared hope, is evinced by the

The mere expenditure of money on 
a production Is no earnest of its suc- 
cess, to judge from the number of 
elaborately staged plays of all classes 
that have failed to elicit a profitable 
degree of popular approval during the

The Question may be raised, what 
constitutes a success? To answer su- 
perficially but along true lines — a poor 
company will ruin the best of plavs; 
mediocre comedy will leave the most 
meritorious music without- 'apprecia- 
tion;' just/as the ablest company will 
fail to elicit -enthusiasm for an un- 
meritorious?;play, or poor music -spoil 
good comerlytp * Balance is the repre-

Jus*- closed a metropolitan engage- 
ment because of a lack of patronage - 
Several of the catchiest airs of the 
season w«re among its music, and in 
places its comedy was sparkling and 
brilliant. But the piece was ill-bal-

C. M. S. McClellan's new play. The Jury of 
Fate, was produced for the first time Monday 
evening Jan. 1, at the Shaftesbury Theatre, 
Loudon, Ens., with Henry B. Irving and Lilian 
McCarthy In the leading roles. 

Reports have It that the new play bad the 
advantage of good acting, but that owing to 
the novelty of the setting, which was In six 
tableaux, and the melodramatic character of 
tie piece. It has a doubtful reception at the 
bands of the English andlence. . The critics 
devote unusually long notices to the perform- 
ance, and admit that the play has a good 
deal back of It, but they consider that Mr.' 
UcClellan did not do himself justice. 

Mr. Irving tried to address the pnblic at 
the close of the play, bat, owing to the clamor, 
he was obliged to content himself with thank- 
ing the. audience and bidding it good night.

* that 90 per cent, of the uncalled * 
4r for mail is addressel to persons <$> 

* who do not live In the city to * 

* which the office belongs. * 

* Mr. Hitchcock did not state * 

* that a large portion of this 90 * 

* per cent, of unidentified mall is * 
& addressed to theatrical and gen- 4> 

* eral amusement people, but un- * 

* doubtedly that is the fact. 4" 

* ■ In view of the contingencies <t» 
4* that may grow out of the new *

they will snip as many rattle snakes as their 
friends desire:

overlooked the accounts and found that there 
was a balance left of $987.96. and according 
to the wish of the majority of the subscribers 
to my father's fund Mr. Mayer has placed this 
money In a savings bank to my credit, he act- 
ing as trustee. 

"I make this statement so that all the sub- 
scribers to this fund may know that this money 
baa been handed over to me In the way above 
stated. Mr. Gardner found that Mr. Mayer's 
trusteeship of the fund had been rigidly car- 
ried oat in every respect.

Mniinim to my father and myself, I am, 
"Yours truly.

Quite a number of those who have been engaged in circus 
and carnival business have either quit, or are seriously- 
thinking of doing so. In most cases the reason given is 
that they had too much worry for what they get in re- 
turn. We wish to call the attention of such to the good 
old adage, " TRY AGAIN." The principle thing necessary 
to the success of any amusement enterprise is to begin 
right, and the first move toward a right beginning to a 
successful end is to buy your Tents, Paulins, Flags, Cage 
Covers, Lights, etc., from

DR. «. J. POTTER, 131 E, 25U St., N.Y, CITY 

Also the 

In the U.S. 


If the start of the New Tear ta the theatri- 
cal business In this city Is any Indication of 
what Is coming, this will be the biggest year 
that our managers have ever had, and they 
will all be able to retire with fortunes. Never 
™* any one day shown so great an ontpour- 
™g of people at all of our theatres as the 
nrst of the year. It was entirely unexpected, 
J? ;: Onr city conncilmen hsd appropriated 
S5,ooo for prises for our New Year Shooters — 
clubs of men who parade the streets ta fan- 
tastic costumes and give a very fair imitation 
of the New Orleans Mardi Oras, and It was 
thought that this would hurt the business at 
the theatres, bat It only helped. 

The first Indication of the coming crush was 
at midnight when the four burlesque houses ad- 
vertised a "midnight matinee." The houses 
were to open at 12 o'clock and for an hoar 
before that time the streets ta front of the 
theatres- were black with people. No tickets 
could be sold until it was Monday morning, 
. w ? en tne box offices were opened there was 
a wild scramble which took officers, attachees 
wad everybody on* their feet. Tbe crowd was 
«> great In front of tbe Bijou that Manager 
Bam Dawson made one of his old-time circus 
speeches to the crowd, telling them that be 
aid not want their money, but they only 
laughed at him and then swept down iron gates 
li "'Li?*' werc made of paper. There was 
an awful crowd at tbe Casino, too. It took 
° n J "few moments for the honses to sell out 
and then the doors were closed. 

The regular matinees on New Year's Bsy 
w , er f. J°»t as crowded, but on account of most 
£,.„ "•."•ats being reserved In advance, there 
was not the same confusion. The weather was 
aeaotlral and people gobbled op anything that 
looked Ilka an admission ticket. At night tt 

was Just as bad, end the day showed more 
money taken ta than on any other one day since 
theatres were first started ta this city. 

Keith's Chestnut Street Theatre, having had 
large crowds at all holidays, was better able 
to handle tbe crowds, but there never hsd been 
so many people waiting for admittance as there 
was on that day. For hours the street ta front 
of tbe' theatre was black with people, waiting 
for some person to come out so they could 
squeeze In. One woman said, "Oh, I wish 
some woman would faint ta there, so I could 
get a chance to get ta." Manager Jordan 
and Press Agent Barns both unite ta declaring 
that they never saw as many people clamoring 
for admittance as on that day. The peculiar 
thing about this house Is that no matter how 
large the crowd of people waiting no "chasers" 
are ever pat sn the bill, bnt tbe entire show Is 
given complete. Our people know this, and 
yet they waited for hours for a chance to 
get their noses in. All Hall to 1906. and may 
Its opening day be only the forerunner of many 
more of the same kind. 

At the Academy of Music Ben Greet's Play- 
ers are announced for four performances start- 
ing Jan. 11. The advance sale Is very large. 
At the same bouse the grand opera season 1b 
in full force. The Metropolitan Opera Co. come 
over from New York once a week, bringing 
scenery and everything complete. The Queen 
of Sheba was the attraction Jan. 2, and a 
matinee performance of Haensel and Oretel 
was given Jan. 4. The Philadelphia Orchestra 
gives two concerts a week at the same house. 

Miller and Kauffman, managers of the Gir- 
ard snd Forepangh's theatres, gave their an- 
nual dinner to employees, company and news- 
psper men Dec. 80. It was largely attended, 
and proved a big success ta every way. 

W. S. *Yerkes, of the O. J. Gnde Co., spent 
part of the holidays ta visiting Mends In tils 

city. He has many admirers here who can not 
help but be pleased with the success he has 
met with since he went to New York. 

Sara Bernhardt, who will play a week's en- 
gagement at the Lyric, starting Jan. 8, Is being

It Is announced that Frank How.e, Jr., bas 
engaged Thomas W. Boss for tbe leading part 
In Bine Grass, tbe new racing play by Paul 
Armstrong, which Is to be produced ta this 
city ta February. As Mr. Boss was a big 
favorite here during the run of Checkers, be 
will no doubt help in swelling the crowds that 
will attend the premier production. 

Tbe new anti-pass regulation put Into ef- 
fect by the Pennsylvania Railroad Is very 
sweeping, and has already affected a number of 
theatrical men who formerly rode free. When 
they dive down ta their Jeans now and pro- 
duce coin for railroad tickets how they do 
squirm. As yet nothing definite bas been set- 
tled about free transportation for circus ad- 
vance agents. 

The funeral of C. A. Bradenburgh, owner of 
the Mnseum, was held on Tuesday, Jan. 2. 
and was largely attended by theatrical and 
circus people, and numerous societies, to which 
he belonged. Tbe Mnseum was closed tbe af- 
ternoon of tbe funeral. It win be continued 
by his widow and sons, and tbe same manage- 
ment will .be retained. 

Sam Sanford, who died In Brooklyn on Dec. 
31, was burled ta this city on Jan. 4 from the 
residence of his nephew. 'The interment took 
place ta the Elks Best In Mt. Moriaa Cemetery. 
Tbe funeral was largely attended. Mr. San- 
ford started the first permanent minstrel com- 
pany In this city, and at the same house, tbe 
Eleventh Street Opera House, Dumont's Min- 
strels, the only permanently stationed minstrel 
company ta the world, still continue to per-

Chicago has taken rank as the pro- 
ducing center of airships. Three Aims, heavily 
capitalized, have been Incorporated for the pro- 
duction of what promises to be, for a time at 
least, one of the most popular features of the 
amusement -business. We seem to be nearlng 
the consummation of the principles of aerial 
flight on the one-day stands, but there is little 
qusetion that It can be effected. : ■ ■' : - 

On account of the exploitation of the air- 
ship as a feature of amusement, the tent makers 
of Chicago are dally /receiving: inquiries and 
orders for the imannfactare of the balloons that 
are used to lift the apparatus- The manufac- 
turers of gasoline engines are also devoting a 
great deal of time to perfecting a light ma- 
chine of great power for the same purpose. 

The- White City :v airship,- which has been 
named The Eagle, bas already been booked for 
the Hardl Gras at New Orleans In February, 
and an attempt will be made to sail out over 
the Golf of Mexico. The Bodkin airship and 
t&at jnanufactured by the United States Aerial 
Co. are also in demand, and it Is quite possible 
that a number of these mammoth birds will 
be featured with the leading circuses next 
season. The principal difficulty to be over- 
come f»r the circus; feature will be the reduc- 
tion of time necessary to prepare the ship for 
Sight to whldi thousands of our great scien- 
tists nave devoted their lives, each, perhaps, 
perfecting one of the many essentials which 
work together to make navigation above the 
clouds possible.

With the New Year came delightfully crisp 
weather which always serves to bring out the 
theatre-goers in vast throngs. Good bills were 
the rule at the playhouses last week, the pro- 
duction of Humpty Dmnpty at the Grand being 
the most conspicuous. 

The Drury Lane spectacle proved an immense 
drawing card and the advanced rate of seats 
did not stay those who wished to witness the 
wonderful production. Humpty Dumpty proved 
to be as great. If not greater, than it was 
rated, and it satisfied the multitudes. 

Undoubtedly the most fashionable audience of 
the season greeted In New York Town at the 
Walnut last week. Its a choice bit of enter- 
tainment and there are some good players in 
■the piece. Cliff Gordon as Baron Yon Esslgs 
has one of the best characters seen at the Wal- 
nut for a long time. Chas. Howard Is fine In 
a Jew part. Ida Emerson. Clara Austin, Jen- 
nie Austin, Kitty Morgan and Lydia Franklyn

To finance the plan the Dreamland Construc- 
tion Co. has been Incorporated with a capitali- 
zation of $750,000, $300,000 of which will be 
sold before the construction work begins. The 
remainder. of the bonds will be held In reserve. 
The company has opened offices In the Kohl 
Building. San Francisco, and Mr. Granman 
states that already $100,000 worth of bonds 
have been sold. 

The site for the new resort has already been 
leased for a period of ten years, with a privi- 
lege of renewal and ultimate purchase. There 
are twelve acres In the plot upon which Dream- 
land will be built. Overlooking Baker's beach 
and the ocean, the Bite is a most appropriate 
one for the creation or a dream city and the 
delightful climate of that country will aid In 
making the lawns and gardens all the more 

' Among the attractions tbat the promoters 
promise to establish In Dreamland will be a 
grill and restaurant with an orchestra, a ball- 
room and skating rink. There will also be an 
ice-skating rink, one of the longest and crook-

ity for selecting plays which can not fail 
to please the diversified tastes of all lovers of 
dramatic art. as was manifested by the large 
and well satisfied audiences which prevailed 
throughout the week. Mr. Harry Fenwick as 
Don John was seen at his best, and Miss La- 
vlnia Shannon in the role of Dona Dolores de- 
serves much credit for the excellent manper 
in which she acquitted herself. Others deserv- 
ing special mention are Mr. Gilbert Ely as 
Captain De Mendoza, Miss Louise Kent as 
Anna De La Cerda, Princess of Eboll, and 
Mr. Richard Williams in the role of King Phil- 
lip II. The minor roles were in the hands of 
competent persons. 

At the Columbia a fairly good bill was put 
on. Nina Morris and Co. pleased with her 
playlet, A Friend's Advice; while May Bel- 
fort in a budget of character songs made the 
hit of the bill. Next came Waterbury Brothers 
and Tenney. and while their act is ancient it 
still retains much that is interesting. Others 
were Raymond and Caverly, Goleman's Dogs 
and Cats, World's Comedy Four, Signorina 
Verera and the Nelson-Barry Family. 

The Jolly Grass Widows returned to Peo- 
ple's with Troja as a special feature, and proved

Theatre Billposting 
Co. in New York 

Officers Elected and Operations Begun 
—Will Do Theatre Posting Only at 
Present — May Take Commercial 
Work Later— Now Watch the Fur 
Fly— Philadelphia, Possibly. 

New York, Jan. 6. — The Theatrical Manager's 
BUlpostlng & (Distributing Co., was incorpo- 
rated under the laws of the State of Delaware 
last week with a capital of $100,000. This .ac- 
tion was exclusively predicted by The Billboard 
' several weeks ago, and is the result of a long 
series of preliminary meetings of the members 
of the New York Theatre Managers' Association 
at which the proposition was carefully Investi- 
gated and the plans outlined. 

The first purpose of the organization of this 
company was to prevent the possibility of an 
exhorbltant advance in posting rates being made 
In New York by the combination of the Sfcftr 
York and Van Beuren companies Into one cor- 
poration. Eventually it is expected tbat the 
new company will bid for commercial work, 
bnt for the present the needs of the New York 
theatres will receive first attention. Locations 
are being secured, and boards will soon be 
built, so that many of the New York theatres 
will be posting on the boards of the new 
plant before long. 

The stock of the new corporation is held 
exclusively by members of tbe New York Thea- 
tre Managers' Association. The officers are Alf 
Hayman, manager of Knickerbocker Theatre, 
president; J. H. Springer, manager of Grand 
Opera House, vice-president; Henry B. Harris, 
manager of Hudson Theatre, secretary; Charles 
Burnham, manager of Wallack's Theatre, treas- 

At this writing we are Informed that final 
arrangements win be completed at the meeting 
of the Managers' Association to be held Jan. 
10, and that the new company will begin busi- 
ness at once thereafter. 

The most serlons business that confronts the 
new company Is the matter of locations. The 
Van Beuren-New York Co.. will undoubtedly 
Interpose a strong competition and the rental 
for space will soar to high figures. The thea- 
tre managers are fully able to cope with this 
contingency as tickets will frequently buy 
more space than many times the equivalent In 
real money. In any event there Is sure to 
be a lively fight from now on. 


It has been Intimated that the theatre man- 
agers of Philadelphia win Join interests with 
the New York Managers* Association In the 
movement for Independent plants. This report 
gains color on account of the recent move on 
the part of Sanford H. Robison in practically 
catting loose from the BUlpostlng Sign Co., of 
that city. 

As first reported In The Billboard last week 
. •. t Ko H5 on nas Purchased the sign Interests 
of the BUlpostlng Sign Co. and the entire out- 
J 001 " advertising P'ants in Camden and Atlan- 
SJiy* N. J., and organized the S. H. Robl- 
son Co. with separate offices. Mr. Robison has 
always owned the plant at Atlantic City In 
toto, but was supposed to have but a half In- 
terest In the Blllpostlng-SIgn Co., holding the 
position of general manager. It Is believed' 
* .T 1 ? 1 the organization of the new com- 
pany u is the Intention of Mr. Robison to sever 
tit !!° nne ? n . on wlth ,ne Blllpostlng-SIgn Co. 
whleh will leave that concern In the hands of 
tne arm of Nixon & Zimmerman, theatre man- 
"sere, who are the principal owners.
